    While it may seem crude, I have to admit, it does look quite promising.

    Down South we call that a "cattle prod". LOL

    Seriously, that's pretty cool. When slicing your opponent to bits isn't enough, use a taser sword! Cut and cauterize all at once! :)

    Put that stunning capacity into the tip of an epee. Fencers already have electric cords connected to their swords. Batteries could be worn as a belt with the cord running from that to the weapon.

    That's pretty awesome actually. But I think we should have skipped this and gone straight for lightsabers.

    Same as an anime sword as far as I'm concerned.

    Peace favor your sword,

    Cute.
    Of course, you're going to need to temper and anneal that blade quite often....

    I do like the idea of replacing the button on an epee with a tazer though. It would make epee matches a lot more interesting to watch. :rofl:

    Watching him show how the sword charges, I was reminded of the scene in Just Married in which Aston Kutchers character tries to force the US plug on a vibrator into the European socket, setting fire to the lovely Castle...

    Besides the fact that it's fake, the basic idea is pretty stupid in my opinion. Seems a bit of overkill to stab someone and taser their heart directly, as if sticking a sword into it wouldn't handle things well enough. :)

    Not if you're fighting Lord Makoto Shishio and his gunpower charged sword attacks. :p

    It gives you a better non-lethal option: smackin' 'em with the flat of the sword has always been there but this gives that option a little.. boost. :)

    Looks cool. A good prelude to a lightsaber.
